I'm sure hell find a way to rid the team of a contract or two, but again - if he had done his job correctly he wouldnt have to waste his time and effort in figuring out how to do so. This team is always behind the 8-ball.
I think this is a big part of it. Sather's trades almost always involve fixing his screw-ups, rather than trying to improve the team. Yet every summer he does the same thing. He clears salary and wastes it on Kotalik's, Brashear's, Redden's, etc. If he spent it wisely he wouldn't have to pull off trades like with Gomez and Kotalik. He could trade for some actual talent instead of shipping off his blunders.
